All u sound dum max tassy is max tassy only reason why cops pulled those cuffs out. Just for journal news headlines. Usually in a brawl people get mased n more than one individual gets arrested but rather than let max tassy a young black man pushing towards a dream go home to his bed the police would rather make journal news with a young black male as subject young black male making history at that

http://nyack.patch.com/articles/two-20-year-olds-from-new-city-west-nyack-charged-in-fight-with-police-outside-nyack-bar Why such a difference in bail when these two went all out with the cops and committed more crimes?
Can't we all just get along March 07, 2012 at 07:27 PM
More people should have been arrested since there was a large group involved. Professional boxers/fighters might be treated differently because their hands are weapons that can do much more damage than a regular persons hands. They are trained to fight. Unfortunately anyone trying to make something of themselves are going to be targeted and they needed to remove themselves from situations that might ruin their chance to achieve their dream.
